An excellent story for those who loved the original Dying Light. of the first Dying Light who could never get over the anxiety of dating jumpers. The sequel will require you to play in darkness and will be played at a specific time to maximize the effect.

Main and side quests for the night Night raids for precious materials, and evening hikes through zones rife with mutants, filled with chemicals, in which the day and the sun never shine. Night chases are filled with adrenaline and night raids that are shady and, of course, night fights with bosses!

The town of Villedore, where the principal games take place, is diverse and huge. It is primarily on rooftops. The majority of streets are filled with monsters in the daytime and more deadly monsters at night.

You can also go down there be a bit disappointed, and then at night, the flash of your flashlight catches any animal, you are ready to call out the entire area, calling for an influx of their eager companions.

Although Dying Light 2 Although Dying Light 2 is excellent with its graphics, parkour, and gameplay, it’s a mess with the story: inconsistent dialogue, as well as unpredictable and irrelevant narratives. Some scenes are so absurd they are challenging to watch. In many cases, it’s unclear if the creators are so sly in their sense of humor or if the film was created on the severe side. It’s a mix of things, all in a sour broth of meat.

The main character of the game is known as Aiden. He is an explorer. This is how the modern world has developed, decades after the first epidemic of the Tachytransmissive Haran Virus (THV) called the stalker-couriers that wander outside of communities, supply them with communications and sources that humans, because of mutants, wouldn’t even consider stepping foot.

This same video that sent Crane (the protagonist of the initial part) to the center of Dying Light events has quietly been experimenting with the virus. But, then, things went off the rails again, and the catastrophe was apocalyptic in scope. Villedore was among the cities where secret biological weapons were carried out. The town was closed and submerged with chemicals following the outbreak, and the THV infected all residents.

Aiden has been wandering around the desert for the past four years, searching for Waltz, the science center director where Aiden and his fellow children were illegally being tested for years before the latest outbreak. In the event of a fire within the lab, Aiden took the opportunity to escape. However, it was not enough to save the life of his sibling Mia, and he is now sure that Waltz is aware of her fate. The scoundrel’s trail takes him to Villedore, and Aiden follows his path towards the city.

In the chaotic sequence at the beginning, the characters will meet renegades led by Waltz Aiden’s informant, who will be killed to obtain his VGM Access key that he can provide us with before his death. Unfortunately, Aiden is bitten and becomes infected as well, and the locals attempt to kill him; however, a surprising ally comes in to save him and assists in obtaining the inhibitors and biomarkers that are needed, and without them, Aiden is at risk of becoming an animal before he can find his sister.

Furthermore, without an indicator of an infestation bracelet, the person isn’t accepted in the local community. It’s like QR passes. If there’s a green marker on the screen, the merchant will do business with you. The guys with red markers wander around on the streets, drooling and choking on passers-by.

Ultraviolet isn’t just used to repel the infected but also prevents THV from spreading throughout the body. It is not active when it’s bright; however, once the host is removed from the saving radiations, the biomarker is counted down until converted.

New mechanisms restrict the length of time a character can spend in darkness, forcing the character to concentrate on identifying inhibitors (drugs that boost immunity to viruses). The majority will be kept in the places that you do not need to by way of the aid of a timer.

The more inhibitors Aiden can accumulate, the more he will remain in slumber. For every three capsules of the drug, the user will experience a boost in stamina or health based on the choice. The key allows access to special doors and boxes and reveals that the drug inhibitor is in the vicinity.

VILEDOR is divided into various sectors and districts, sure of which are under the control of local groups: Peacekeepers and Renegades of Waltz and Survivors, or just bandits without names. Large, distinctive, the city is surrounded by greenery and, in some areas, it is inhabited. The inhabitants have been taught to cultivate gardens on rooftops and breed bees to clean and extract water, but there’s often a shortage of electric power.

In the old city the wind farms are located in Old Town in the central region there are substations as well. If Aiden can reach the panels (read and solve the game), Aiden can run the sector and select the faction to which it belongs. Bandits and Renegades fly through, leaving Peacekeepers and Survivors whom we’ll meet and interact with during our story as well as other tasks. Often, they are very ineffective.

Very pleased with the mission in the main chain. I am with the girl with no option to sell the trophy weapon discovered inside the pocket of the leader of Peacekeepers murdered. She would like to buy an instrument to identify her 11-year-old brother and a water supply and is prepared to gift the prize to Aiden, but the other players are not permitted to make payments to her. You can either refuse to pay, or you decide to divorce the child with a sum that is fifty times less than the amount that is required (even knowing that you have cash in your pockets at the moment). Keep Human, you say? That’s the entire way.

The majority of the stories are strange, like an unclean corpse at the children’s play. They don’t match the game’s tone and frequently end up ruining it. There’s a constant gap between the plot and its setting. The characters, the faction leaders and villains, the protagonists are all boring and routine, and no one stands out. Their stories do not provoke an emotional reaction.

This could be the primary reason why it is possible that the Russian voice actors from Dying Light 2 failed in getting into the soul of their subjects like their English speaking counterparts. Much to my dismay, Except for Hakon and possibly Waltz, the characters in their voice acting appear unnatural and fake. Contrary to their past, Cyberpunk 2077 can be seen as an excellent example of average drama.

The funniest aspect is that my system doesn’t let me choose the voiceover and subtitles. Or I’m playing an entirely English rendition of Dying Light 2, or it’s a completely localized version. I hope this issue will be resolved at some point.

With all the bad texts and characters and stories, You don’t want to select an individual character or faction; however, you’ll need to. In the end, at least for the rewards from turbines and power plants, The factions will be able to choose from, slowly transform the areas, and elevate the territories.

The peacekeepers will booby trap vehicles, stick pendulums, electronic traps, and give the victim a crossbow with rapid-fire, and the survivors will string cables, construct springboard cushions, as well as the pears that cushion fall. Certain will alter the city to serve military purposes, and others will open up alternate routes. If “humanity” is not controlled, you can offer a preference based on the type of the game.

It’s extremely vibrant in Villedore. In the daytime, the people are busy with their daily chores, including working in the fields, fighting mutants, and constructing fires to relax and listen to songs or stories. Even in the daytime, the raucous atmosphere draws fast-biters; however, this could be used to pit the stage for a bandit camp.

Strange flora and fauna emerge at night to hunt runners, screamers mutants, mutants that have attack ranges, battering rams, and the particularly dangersome Revenants – notorious night-time bosses in the area who reside in the strange regions of the VGM. The fear of escaping to the nearest UV lights is enough for the raging beasts or for the sake of running unreversible genetic mutation.

At the time of day, participants take a look around with binoculars, hunt for resources with a sense of survival as they play with the relief vehicle and even crates full of supplies take part in dynamic challenges and other events. At night, they search for trophies and prizes from rare monsters, assist people who haven’t been able to reach the camps, and venture into the dark areas – local dungeons where it is highly advised not to go out in the daylight. I once walked through the basement in one of the VGM facilities during daylight hours and was shocked to see a gang of old-fashioned jumpers.

It is crucial to take note of Techland’s professionalism in design for the world. Nearly every low-lying or high-rise building offers alternative routes for experienced parkourers, and each serious climb is supported with fall ladders so that parkourers don’t have to go back up if they are thrown off.

While the protagonist is engaged with street activities, proactively and effortlessly overcoming many obstacles, he understands the subtleties of parkour fighting improve combat performance. The lessons learned are converted into skill points that can be used in sports and allow Aiden to develop his abilities.

A person who follows the parkour route will eventually be able to climb walls, slide away obstacles to make high-jump jumps to accelerate and glide to land safely, and hold onto the ledges during a desperate leap from an extremely high height even when Aiden has exhausted his endurance.

The warrior’s path will take the hero to master grappling, jump kills as well as lightning kills, parries, and slashing at targets from a great distance. There’s even a different branch to use the bow should the user wish to become an assassin quietly slashing away from an extended distance.

The game doesn’t restrict you to the number of branches you can choose from and lets you develop your character in any way you like, be aware that the developers like to keep Aiden within tight spaces with bandits, mutants, or bosses (and often, all at one time) So mastering a few combat skills and boost your health, not a stretch.

Techland has worked on animation and physics to ensure correct dismembering and focusing on slo-mo moments with particular impact. There is in Dying Light 2 a huge number of different clothes and weapons, specifically made to be sharpened for games with conditional classes to allow players to gather a complete set of items for the style they prefer.

When the system requirements are fulfilled, on the maximum graphics settings and DirectX12 with “rays” disabled and fog slightly simplified, The game can run at a steady 60 fps on a super-wide screen, however, only using the lightest scaling.

For those who like “rays” in the form of soft shadows and models of lighting, shading, and reflections. There is also the option of ray tracing separately from the flashlight. In this case, we’ll need Ryzen 7 3700X and RTX 3080-level hardware.

Concerning the performance of the game on the next generation consoles we’ll discuss this a bit later.

Like any excellent game that has a vast open, live-action world, There are lots of bug-ridden areas in Dying Light 2. I was once a witness to a funeral procession that turned to ashes in the funeral fire pit as the shepherd gave his tribute. Many bugs are easy to put away from until you become “stuck” on a balcony as you try to escape from creatures or until your target object is smashed through the textures. This can be fixed.

Localization is near-perfect. However, there are a few imperfections too. For instance, I faced a challenge when solving a puzzle to figure out the answer. In the English version, in order to solve it, the key is to be aware of the word play, but in Russian, this was not considered, and the question was not written correctly. Luckily that it is a fact that the English text is available, as it’s impossible to figure it out.

Also, I have my fair share of concerns about conventions for games. For me, as someone who believes in preconceived notions for gaming, Techland’s choices were a bit baffling and hurriedly implemented. But, they’re more of a shock rather than a deterrent to enjoying the game. It is possible that they could be part of the build that is in pre-release. Therefore, we won’t focus on them.

Like Aiden, who is unable to find a method of ensuring that he is neutral among both the Survivor or Peacekeeper sides, I’d prefer to be somewhere in between and not advise players to purchase Dying Light 2, nor I would recommend it.

Techland was successful in its gameplay, but not with the stories. Combat and exploring the game’s world is enjoyable; however, understanding its story and interfacing with the locals is the same. If you’re looking to Dying Light 2 for new exciting levels, you’ll probably not get them. But should you be looking for an exciting experience and some adrenaline, you’re in the right place.
